Railway applications - Axle design method

Abstract

This Technical Report gives guidance for:- the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) to supplement the axle calculation defined in relevant standards for wheelset calculation and to deteremine in particular conditions for fitting transitions and groves; - determination of fatigue limits consistent with the FEM procedure;- validation of the fatigue limit of the blasted axles and unpainted axles. It contains a proposal of a method for the analysis of in service load measurements to be applied in the fatigue assessment of axles.
